I did it. I heaped everything I owned into a uhaul, drove for five sweltering days, and drove across the country to Portland.
I enjoy a measure of solitude and I am THE most self-reliant individual you’ll ever know. But what I’ve recognized about myself is how I’ve had to cope with everything this year almost completely by myself. Colleen’s death completely disemboweled me emotionally, and I’ve hid myself away mainly because I’m careful about who I’ll show it to.
I shouldn’t have been alone for four days. At least I have wifi again. But I’m in one piece and I’ll start posting more regularly.
